Proverbs 4:20-22(KJV); My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
Every principle you need to live a great and successful life is in the scriptures. Even the men and women who author books on success borrow from these time tested principles.
In 2 Peter 1:3-4, the Bible reveals that God has given unto us all things that pertain to life and godliness. You have everything that you need to live a godly life.
However, all these things are in His Word. The Word will show you the how of ministry; the how of business; the how of marriage; the how of parenting; the how of innovation; the how of health and everything in between!
Do you read the word as an emergency appeal? Do you open the Bible to find a fix for a current situation? Do you run to it only in times of trouble? Do you read it merely to preach a sermon on Sunday? Do you read it so you can find a new revelation to splash on social media?
In Deuteronomy 4:6, after the Lord gave to the children of Israel His statutes, He said, ‘this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’
Living and breathing the scriptures is what will make you wise in the eyes of the world.
Have the Word everywhere; in your car, your house and at your workplace. Make the choice not to merely visit the Word; live in it!

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for the gift of your Word. It is my life, my firm foundation and the light for my feet. I choose to study it like my life depends on it, because it does. I invest in it with all that I have because it is more precious than anything money can buy. It dictates my every action, response and decision. I am not just a believer, I am a Word being. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
